WLJ: Just chilling

We're eleven days into December.  I've maintained my weight so far this holiday season.  But I have some parties coming up, so I'll have to be careful.

I'm still doing okay on my planks challenge.  It's actually the easiest challenge I've done.  I can find a few minutes every day -- during a commercial break or while I'm waiting for my dinner to cook.

Making myself do longer workouts is the challenge.  Believe me - I have time for a 30-minute, 45-minute or even an hour long workout, but I just can't get motivated.  At least not as often as I want to.  Last week, I went for an awesome run and then had a great yoga class.  I also did some Zumba.  I felt amazing after each workout.  Why can't I remember that when I feel like the TV, computer and couch seem to be calling my name?

Ah yes.  The cold weather.  The early darkness.  It just kills my motivation.  That's really a poor excuse because I know other people beat and get their workouts in.

But oh well.  As long as I'm hanging in there and still doing something each week, I won't beat myself up too much.  But I really do need to get moving more often.  I'll keep trying.

Weight-loss goal: 40 lbs.
This week's progress: -0.4 lbs.
Progress to date: -35.6 lbs.
Non-scale victory: My run last Tuesday was amazing.  I wish the weather was that nice again.  50s.  Instead, it looks like winter has really set in.  I may have to embrace the dreadmill.

  1. The cold weather kills my workout motivation too. I get home from work at 6p and it's dark! :( My couch and DVR look so much more tempting than my Booty Sculpt videos.
